Abstract

The species of the genus Uloma Dejean, 1821 (Coleoptera: Tenebrionidae) from two Malaysian regions i.e. Sabah and Selangor were explored. The diagnostic characteristics were figured and species key was provided for two newly recorded species including U. sextuberosa (Kaszab, 1980) and U. excise (Gebien, 1913). The species typically live under the barks of trees or rotten wood, even outside forests and in cultivated land. The insect species are common in nearly all zoogeographical regions of the Old and New World.
